    Undoubtedly :)

    OK boys, so I've just started thrifting and am trying to offload my old crap/wardrobe on eBay - problem is, I've never sold anything on eBay before (yeah, yeah)... is there a guide anywhere for a noob to eBay? Figured you guys would be the best to ask!

    Try here:
    http://pages.ebay.com/sellerinformation/howtosell/sellingbasics.html

    And pick up some tips here:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/309281/...tricks-problems-questions/300_20#post_5678690

    The one thing I'll flag for you is as a new seller you'll have your funds locked up for up to 21 days. You can reduce that by using PayPal shipping (I think that gets you down to 3 days, post delivery).

    Also, you may want to try a local consignment store. I manage to clear about $100 for a suit (after thrift cost and dry cleaning). You'll have to consider how the vagaries of the market, ebay and paypal fees affect your bottom line.

    Good luck!

    I went to a 6 year old niece's birthday party today at one of those places that cater to that sort of thing with inflatable bounce houses and slides and such. I was trying for casual/indoor playground. One of the staffers, a young African American guy at/under 20 years old told my daughter that he really liked my style. I don't know if it's good to be compared to Kanye or not at my advanced age.

    Funny thing, though. Since I started my sartorial journey on this site over a year ago, I've gotten more compliments on my appearance from black guys than in my entire life.
    I'll take it! [​IMG]

    Just found this 100% cashmere topcoat, any ideas on the maker? Its made in Austria, but cant find a name anywhere on it. It seems to be pretty well made with pick-stitching everywhere. Its definitely black, unlike the photo suggests. Apologies for the photos, I am still living with a 10 year old camera.

    Thanks for the confirmation! Also, the BBGF is a 40R, so sleep tight.
